Unveiling the Gigabyte GS27F, a novel 27-inch 1080p gaming monitor geared towards delighting video game enthusiasts through its superior attributes. This screen’s focus is on delivering a high refresh rate and swift response time to elevate the gaming experience.
The GS27F proudly touts an impressive peak refresh rate of 170 Hz, accompanied by a nimble 1 ms response time, gauged through the MPRT metric. Leveraging FreeSync Premium, the monitor adeptly synchronizes image output with a compatible graphics card, effectively thwarting visual artifacts like tearing.
With a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, the screen might seem somewhat modest. However, considering the 27-inch diagonal of the panel, the monitor’s performance shines through. This choice of native resolution complements hardware of varying power, enhancing its potential to capitalize on higher refresh rates.
Gigabyte claims HDR readiness for this monitor. Yet, given its communicated 300 cd/m² typical brightness and 1,000:1 contrast ratio, expectations for a truly immersive HDR experience might be tempered. The array of features is relatively minimal; the monitor permits tilting but lacks rotation or height adjustment capabilities, although it does offer compatibility with a VESA mount.
Displaying prowess in connectivity, the GS27F accommodates image signals through both DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0 ports. Some gaming enhancements are on offer, including the option to overlay a crosshair or enhance visibility in dim sections of the image.
